School Days

We started school again last week so one day, we went outside to take some school pictures!

 1st grader!!
 She had her own ideas for some poses and props. :)

How is it that "1st grade" sounds so much older than "kindergarten"?!

On Broadway!

Several weeks ago, Chris and Laura Anne had a daddy/daughter date at Chick-fil-A. We love our Chick-fil-A and take part in their special events whenever we can. While they were there, they won tickets to see and upcoming show! Beauty and the Beast!!! How crazy exciting!!!

So that's where the 2 of them are as I write this. I can only imagine what the experience is like for a 6-year-old!

Here are some pictures of this special day!

The tickets!! Woohoo!

Her fancy 'do

We had to get dinner together for Chick-fil-A appreciation day!! The kids and I stayed in the van to avoid all the chaos inside. :)

Here they are, about to leave!
Chris texted me this picture of Laura Anne in the theater before the show started. How excited she must've been!!

I can't wait until they get home and she can tell me all about it!

Officially Unofficial

We officially have 2 unofficial pets. Laura Anne found this cute little peewee (baby lizard) inside the house last week. We let it go outside but it lives in a plant right by the front door. His name is Herman. Peewee Herman. ;o)
 And this cute little kitty is Wubbzy III. In case you didn't remember, there was a black cat that hung around Granny's house when we lived with her for a short time 3 years ago. Laura Anne named him Wubbzy. Then there was cat that hung around our house when we lived in Deltona and that was Wubbzy as well. So of course, when this kitty started hanging around, Laura Anne immediately wanted to name him Wubbzy. It stuck, and Wubbzy is outside our door everyday. Poor little guy. He's really skinny and has the sweetest personality. I don't think he gets food from anyone else because every time I open the door, he's right there. So yes, I caved and started buying him some cat food and he loves me now.
It's kind of funny to me that cats seem to be drawn to us, considering 2 of us have cat allergies. This is the closest we'll ever get to having a cat as a pet!

Proud Moment

I had to buy this shirt for Laura Anne a few weeks ago. See, if you know my girl, she's always singing. While she's playing, while she's getting dressed, while she's in the restroom, etc. She always has a song on her lips. So I bought her this shirt (yes, it was on sale!), and the next day I asked her if she wanted to wear it. Her reply was, "yes, but that's not my life. God is my life."

That's my girl. <3

Someone is learning how to write his name.


She did this with no prompting from me. :)
